Beautiful place!

Old building, very beautiful and allow free viewing. In the past it was the seat of the courthouse in Manaus, where took place the judgment of crimes.

Planned on visiting the palace inside and outside after visiting Museo do Indios,but when I got there the gates were closed. I talked to a guard and he told me the only way to get to it was through the front gate, but when I went to the park behind it, I was able to get on the palace grounds... More

Worth the visit. Tour guides are very helpful, nicest folks we encountered in Manaus. A glimpse of how the European Rubber Barons used to live.

Our guide took us here for a brief stop. Unfortunately, it was being remodeled and we were unable to go inside. Still, the building and the surrounding park were quite nice and well kept, and offered a great place for pictures.

The renovated builing on itself is already worth the visit. Inside the antiques and old furniture are just beautiful. The wooden stairs is a jewel.

Very beautiful palace built during the rubber cicle. The most impressing thing is the stair that leads to the second floor. Tour are free and very often. Waze user watch out. The app is leading this building to the Palacete Provincal which is 5 minutes walking from Palacio Rio Negro. They are two diferent attractions. However they are 5 minutes... More

Great to see a old building being used today. This mansion was built in the 1880's by and Austrian rubber baron and then used as the Governor's Office when the rubber boom ended in the 1920's. Today it is used has a cultural center and art gallery.

The building is nice, the guides are friendly, but all in all there is not very much to see. A tour takes maybe a good half hour. It is a bit out of the way, more or less a 30 minute walk from town center. There are more exciting options, however, a visit is not wasted time.
